Our Approach

At Elevation, we focus our effort on ensuring that we provide our clients with the ability to change people’s behaviour, and hence influence their feelings. Changing behaviour is less a matter of giving people analysis to influence their thoughts than helping them to see a truth to influence their feelings. Our Change Management approach (shown below) should enable an organisation to achieve a desired change outcome through providing a visual evidence of the problem (see), which provokes a feeling to want to act (feel), and finally result in a reinforcement of a new change in behaviour (change).
